Celebrating Myself – Happy Birthday to Me…

Today is my birthday. And I had long decided to dedicate this birthday of mine to myself, to celebrating myself, something which, perhaps, we are not really taught to do much in this life. Today, I want to celebrate my own self and nothing else – not my work, not any small (or large) accomplishments that I might have achieved in life till now, but I’m celebrating myself, my life, this life. Because I am alive & kicking.

I also want to thank each one of YOU for being there with me & for me, doesn’t matter even if it is virtually through the social networking channels, or otherwise. This, last one year has not always been an easy one – I’ve taken leaps of faith and risked it all for work and even otherwise, and I am still here. I’ve survived. Yes, I have. And all through this, my friends – yes, YOU have been with me. That is what friends are for, they lift your spirits up. We nod our heads in appreciation when things go well and our way, and when things start to fall apart, we show our fists and then put our heads together to find ways to perhaps start all over. And that is precisely what has happened with me too. I’ve been happy, I’ve been sad, a tad depressed too, a little suicidal at times, perhaps. But, I’ve never given up, I’ve been through all this and I’m still breathing. And doing well in life.

Thank you all for making my birthday this spectacular. Thank you for being my friend, for being a well wisher. I also understand the fact that dreams don’t always come true, but me, I am a romantic at heart. I look at things from a different perspective, but at the same time I’m a realist too. I completely believe that dreams come true with hard work & perseverance. Yes, I am saying this, I’m the same guy who has been down and out and had been struggling a lot with life, and was hospitalized for nervous breakdown and depression and what not. Still, I survived. And that is exactly what matters.

On this day, on my birthday, I want to know your dreams. I want to know what YOU dream about. Think of it as a gift to me from you. You sharing your dream with me would be the perfect birthday gift for someone like me who yearns for a little bit of love, care & affection. Post your dreams on the comment section (either on Facebook or here), let me know about your dream(s). I’d love to read through each comment, one by one.

Oh, and there is one more thing I want for my birthday – that you celebrate yourself. Without any sort of guilt, or shame. Absolutely unabashedly. Now, that would be a birthday worth wishing “happy birthday to you” for. šŸ™‚
